shoot me now


Another absolutely insane day. Having two sets of swimming lessons is difficult. It's 100 extra minutes of driving, every day! Yikes. The kids all did great today, though, even DS2 was kicking his best ever. DD finally, finally made some progress in the water, she usually kicks so ineffectually, she just splashes around a lot and never moves. Today, forward motion! It could still improve a lot, but it was the best I've ever seen her do. DS1 continues to blow me away. He seems very comfortable in the pool now, and is working on his freestyle stroke. He is very determined to do well. He's a bit skittish about diving, though, and I'm not sure why. Well, for Day 2, it was really spectactular.

I got some feedback today from my boss on the latest batch of web copy I sent over. He didn't like the home page, and neither did his partner, but for different reasons. Both of these guys are heavy on the jargon-y, poly-syllabic words, and I frankly hate that crap. Well. We talked for a bit, then late this evening I got his home page proposal and it makes me just want to throw up my hands and say, "If you want to do this, go right ahead, I'll bill you for my hours and get on with my life, 'bye!"

We will most likely butt heads again tomorrow afternoon. Whee! Partner guy wants testimonials, "I increased my bottom line by X% using our product!" but I told the boss that I'm not going to just make up stuff and present it as a testimonial... it's lying but in public like that, it may even be fraud (I didn't mention that to the boss, though). I'm just not comfortable doing that. Who knows what they will advocate tomorrow.

Then, I have PT scheduled for 4 but no babysitter. What am I going to do? I have no idea. I have to call the babysitter tomorrow morning sharp and get an answer from her, this is really not right I called 2 days ago and left 2 messages. I'm thinking of begging my neighbor to take the kids, I'll only be an hour and a half, total, including travel time... should be OK, right? Not too bad, except it's from 4 to 5, which is killer time. Ack. Ack. Ack.

I wore my new pink dress today (it's a slim sleeveless thing, long but with slits on both sides) and felt pretty all day. Maybe it was a bit preppy to wear my new green kitten-heeled thong shoes with it, but oh well. It was cute and comfy.

And now I turn into a pumpkin.
